Re: AW: [DML] Bright Lights behind AC Control

Or you can just replace the wire between the two spade connectors with a resistor. The one I used has this printed on it;
10 ohm  10%  DALE  10W

OK a new owner over here just asked me how to do this mod.

he wants to make that jumper-thing but looking at the schematic 
I see a problem - I want to have the lights dimmed - using the 
resistor (54) that is already in the car.

Using a single jumper will turn on the center console light
with the head light, but it will be too bright at night.

Now I remember why I cut the center spade off.
That will turn on the light with the head light and it will 
be dimmed. 

Another note - I lately installed the DMCH new light switch
AND I attached the orange wire like suggested.
So far - it works fine. I did some slight modifications though...

One more reminder to add to Elvis' recommendation:

Make sure to "cut" the center spade off and do not
try to "bend and break" it off with pliers, etc.

Several DeLorean owners tried the bend and break
method a few years ago and there appeared to be a
rather high failure rate to the relay after the
bend and break stresses are applied to the relay.

A high-speed cut-off tool works very well and if
you do not own one, borrow one to do this mod.
